Stardew Valley – What to Do With Golden Pumpkin

You are currently viewing Stardew Valley – What to Do With Golden Pumpkin

The Spirit’s Eve festival in Stardew Valley is closely related to Halloween, which means Pumpkins are very important during this time of celebration. As you progress through the scary maze that the Wizard created for Pelican Town, you will find at the end a Golden Pumpkin.

Though this Golden Pumpkin looks amazing, it isn’t very clear what you can do with it. The most obvious course of action would be to sell it, considering it is a golden item, and you can generally tell that it will sell well.

What to Do With a Golden Pumpkin in Stardew Valley

There are only three things you can do with the Golden Pumpkin in Stardew Valley:

  • Sell it.
  • Gift it.
  • Use it to craft the Witch Hat.

Selling the Golden Pumpkin

The most obvious solution here is to just sell the Golden Pumpkin. As the description of the item says, “It’s valuable but has no other purpose”.

The exact value you can sell it for is 2,500 g, which is not necessarily amazing at this point in the game, but it is a “free” item, so to speak.

To sell the Golden Pumpkin, just drop it in the Shipping Bin, and you will get the 2,5k gold the following day.

Gifting the Universally Loved Golden Pumpkin

The Golden Pumpkin is one of the few universally loved items by all the villagers in Stardew Valley.

Even items such as the Prismatic Shard or the Rabbit’s Foot have one person who hates them, but the Golden Pumpkin is different.

You can gift the Golden Pumpkin to any villager in Pelican Town, and they will all love it.

If you have more than enough money and want to quickly get some friendship points with a fellow villager, then gifting the Golden Pumpkin would be a great idea for you.

Crafting the Witch Hat

If you’ve managed to get at least 1 piece of Cloth, then you have likely unlocked the Sewing Machine inside Emeily’s house.

At this device, players can craft various clothing using Cloth and a different material alongside it.

If you use a Cloth and a Golden Pumpkin at the Sewing Machine in Stardew Valley, you will get the Witch Hat, which looks really cool but has no use outside of that, as all the hats in the game.

That’s everything you need to know about what to do with a Golden Pumpkin in Stardew Valley!
